Flanders Valley Golf Club - Red/Gold Course
Flanders Valley Golf Course boasts two championship courses that sprawl across the rolling countryside of Morris County. The facility is considered one of the best public golf courses in New Jersey and has even been ranked as one of the top 75 public courses in the country. The Red-to-Gold Course has a hillier terrain than the other course, White-to-Blue, which has a more traditional design. It is the more challenging of the two courses with mature trees scattered throughout and uneven lies provided by the elevation changes, which also offer scenic views of the idyllic surroundings. The Red-to-Gold's seventh hole is the most difficult of all the 36 holes at Flanders. This tricky par 4 has trees flanking both sides and it is also subject to the prevailing winds.

Flanders Valley first timer
It was my first time at Flanders Valley and even though it was a 5 hour Sunday round, the course was nice enough to want to go back and play there again. Played the Blue - White course which had a nice mix of holes. Will want to go play the Red - Gold course one day as well.
The place of play was bad and there really wasn’t anything the Ranger could really do to move things along. Just a nice Sunday with lots of golfers on the course.
Aug 3rd @ Flanders
Typical busy day for Flanders Blue-White. Cart paths only dye to Sunday AM rain.
Pace was dreadfully slow due to CPO and 3 young kids playing Blue Tees who could easily have played from the Reds. After watching too many of their poor shots drift right or left I caught up to a Senior I knew who was playing in their group. I mentioned how painful it must have been for him to be paired with them and he agreed.
No Rangers in sight to move them along
Course was in decent shape for all of the rain
Nice course. Slow play
On this course saw a lot of singles and walkers. Pace of play was slower than I would have liked
Solid Setup, Would Return
Everything about flanders was reasonable except the lack of a range. Greens were smooth but not overly fast and none of the pins were placed particularly undesirable. Pace of play was a little on the slow side but understandable given it was a Saturday afternoon at 1130 when I played. Fairways were taken care of and you can clip the ball nice from it. Id go back. Good value for the money.
The fairways were in terrible condition they were actually potholes in the fairways on many holes never seen that before
Wet Monday in July
Played Gold/Red course today. With over
3 &1/2 inches of rain since Friday, the course was playable but cart paths only.
That wasn't a problem.
The greens were hairy long cause they weren't cut, but were sprayed in the early AM.
Some small puddles but overall great for such a wet period in the past 3 days.
Much pruning along the cart paths is sorely needed which forces you to get off of the paths and onto the surrounding turf.
All in all a find round of golf
